Dev1ce leaves Astralis and joins NiP2021-04-23 10:23:00
Sniper Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz has left Astralis and joined Ninjas in Pyjamas. The four-time Major winner has signed a three-year contract, replacing Tim “nawwk” Jonasson, who has been made available for transfer.
Astralis have also announced that Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen will be the team's fifth player in DreamHack Masters Spring next week.
Dev1ce was in the original Astralis` roster, created in January 2016. During his career, he gained 18 MVP medals (including two from Majors) and has made every HLTV Top 20 since 2014, featuring in the top five in the last six years.
Leaving Astralis is tough, to say the least. The boys will always be like family to me, but this Covid era has left me thinking a lot; where do I see myself when it all goes back to normal?
I’ve lived in Sweden for some time now, speaking the language, and I’m really hyped about this young and exciting NIP project. To join one of the most successful organizations, where so many legends have played, inspires me. Just see what LeBron James achieved with the Lakers, for instance, and with the Major in Stockholm coming up, bringing that home to Sweden is my number one goal.
